  1.

Indiana Univ., Emeritus Professor of Mass Communications at Istanbul Bilgi Univ. If you are looking at this forum, this talk will be of interest to you. http://backtobodrum.blogspot.com.tr/
  2. Books are on sale again in Defne restaurant, Bitez on Sunday 5th April, 11am to 1pm in aid of street dogs and cats. http://backtobodrum.blogspot.com.tr/2015/04/books-in-bodrum.html
  3. I would recommend calling Kim at http://www.sjyachting.com/ or Dina at http://www.southerncrossbluecruising.com/ Both long standing, well respected companies with very high standards. I was in the gulet business for many years so know how careful you have to be in choosing the right yacht. http://backtobodrum.blogspot.com.tr/
  4. Dear Meral, The UK Consulate Office in Bodrum has closed. There is a representative, Aslı, still working in Bodrum who can be contacted by phone. I think the original telephone numbers 0252 3130021/22 still work. http://backtobodrum.blogspot.com.tr/
  5. There is a project to put up 13 wind turbines (and then some more) on the Bodrum peninsula near Geriş. It seems a crazy idea to put them in such an already overcrowded place when there are empty peaks just 30 kms away. http://backtobodrum.blogspot.com.tr/2015/03/tilting-at-windmills-troubling-turbines.html
  6. I collect about 20 tons from the roof to an underground tank as do a lot of individually designed houses in the area. Today I was watching the tons of water rushing off the hillside into the sea and thinking "what a waste". The dam in Mumcular collects enough water in the winter to provide irrigation water for all the fields around and although it got pretty low by the end of the summer, it was still distributing water twice a week. I suppose the geology of the area means that water is "collected" in the winter in the water table and can be pumped out in the summer. Türk Kuyusu (Turkish well) area of Bodrum has been a source of underground water in Bodrum since Hellenistic times.
  7. Dear Aussie girl, I used to have a travel agency but stopped operating several years ago as we couldn't carry on as a small business. We had to turn over an ever increasing amount of foreign currency and carry an increasingly large number of tourists to keep our licence. This is why smaller companies have to use bigger company's licences and put their income through their books. I wasn't prepared to do this so closed our agency despite having many happy clients who were keen to return and be treated as individuals rather that just numbers. TURSAB is the organisation you should consult for the latest regulations.
  8. Most houses built last century have some form of water tank as we rarely had a continuous water supply, The authorities have implied that water will be supplied from the Mumcular dam and other pumping stations during the mains cut.
